Leading Specialists in European Barge Cruises

Cycling Cruises

Imagine spending half your day cycling through the stunning French countryside, exploring exquisite tiny French villages along the way… followed by a beautiful picnic… and then returning to your luxury hotel barge, where you can sit on deck as you cruise, watching the world go by… and as night falls, enjoying a gourmet meal prepared by your private on-board chef… oh and did we mention some fascinating excursions to local markets and historic sites?!

We offer “Biking Plus” itineraries on most barges in France, which include upgraded bikes and half-day guided itineraries including countryside picnics – and on a group charter, we can customise an itinerary just for you! Let us know how much or how little you wish to cycle, and we will provide you with the perfect itinerary, including pre-packed backpacks and pre-planned cycle routes that will allow you to best experience the fascinating villages and sprawling countryside that can be found along the canals.

Every vessel in our fleet carries easy to ride, all-terrain bicycles for your use and helmets are also provided. Our crew members are there to offload them at the next lock or at one of the barge moorings and to make any adjustments to each bicycle to suit the rider.

In addition, we can offer excellent incentives for group organisers/club presidents and on certain departures, discounts for all charter guests.
